Solvang

We start our bus tour north along Highway 1 and eventually reach Malibu. We then head into central valley farmlands of California and the coastal hills of the Los Padres National Forest. Travelling through beautiful countryside, we stop at Santa Barbara's Stearns Wharf for lunch before visiting Solvang, the "Danish capital of America", where you will see windmills, horse drawn carriages, horse ranches, and wineries. We continue north through lush green hills, farmland, and cattle ranches before reaching Morro Bay.

In the morning we continue our trip with the Pacific Ocean on the left and the majestic Santa Lucia mountains on the right.

Our bus tour continues through Castroville, where Norma Jean (Marilyn Monroe) was once crowned Artichoke Queen. Finally we reach Half Moon Bay and Pacifica, where we head north toward San Francisco and our hotel.

Golden Gate Bridge

We start the day by driving over the Golden Gate Bridge and a photo stop. Passing Sacramento we travel to Placerville, a gold rush town, and then on to Camino in the heart of the El Dorado Wine Country. Our route now takes us through the Eldorado National Forest and into South Lake Tahoe and Stateline, where the California - Nevada State Line can be found. If you feel like trying your luck, Stateline has many world-class casinos.

Virginia City, Nevada

Our day begins with a journey through the Toiyabe National Forest toward Genoa, the oldest permanent settlement in Nevada and one of the most attractive villages in the American West.

From Saint George we move on to Las Vegas and Las Vegas Boulevard. We stay at the legendary hotel The Mirage, the ideal place for visiting shows and walking on the Strip.

Calico Ghosttown

Once again we travel down Las Vegas Boulevard before turning in the direction of Barstow. Just before Needles / California we pick up the legendary Route 66 and follow what is commonly considered the most beautiful section of the route. We stop at the Sahara Oasis for refreshments, and again in Amboy at Roy's Cafe. If there is enough time left, we turn off the highway shortly before Barstow and travel into the Mojave Desert for a few miles to see the ghost town of Calico and the old silver mine. Now populated again and lovingly restored, Calico once housed over 1000 miners and adventurers searching for their luck. This beautiful stretch of Route 66 ends in Barstow, named after the owner of the Santa Fe Railroad Company and mentioned in the classic song "Get your kicks on Route 66".

Santa Monica Pier

On our last day we continue on to Victorville, where we descend into the greater Los Angeles basin. We check-in at our hotel and in the evening we gather for our Farewell Dinner and to reminisce our bus tour adventure.
